The Veyron s bold proportions, well-balanced surfaces, and clear

line structures give an impression of pure, sleek elegance.

The design of the Veyron honours a great heritage without drifting

into retro style. Every detail of the classic two-tone colour scheme,

a nod to the 1920s and 1930s, has been carefully thought out,

Every aspect of the Veyron 16.4 s interior focuses on essentials.

Clear lines dominate the design, and all controls reflect a

meticulous attention to detail — the selection and finish of the

Designers and engineers worked closely together to integrate every

single one of the Veyron s many features – from GPS to seat heating

– harmoniously in the cockpit, without allowing it to appear

excessive or too complex. The unique sound experience provided by

the integrated sound system was designed by the high-end


With its 16-cylinder four-wheel drive, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 may

well be the most sophisticated production vehicle of all times.

Boasting a maximum speed of more than 400 km per hour, the

Veyron is unmatched in the super sports category. It offers a total of

1,001 HP, and its ample power reserves even at high speeds are the

fabric of dreams for luxury-class limousines: for a constant speed of

250 km/h, the Veyron only needs 270-280 HP.

The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) ensures the necessary

flexibility and manoeuvrability at any speed. The Veyron reaches

velocities that would literally lift the car off the ground – if it

weren t for its ingenious aerodynamics, which keeps it firmly on the


The Veyron uses the same launch control technology as Formula 1

racing cars to ensure maximum traction from first to seventh gear

and up to the 400 km/h maximum speed.

The electronically controlled acceleration takes the car from

standstill position beyond the 400 km/h threshold in less than one

minute. Just activate launch control, engage gear, control the

steering wheel, place your left foot on the brake, and keep your

The Veyron 16.4 is the fastest production vehicle of all time.

For years, the Bugatti engineers worked diligently in order to push

the 400 km/h boundary. No wind tunnel can simulate this velocity,

which is why after each of a long series of improvements, the

different ground clearance levels and the modifications of the rear

bumpers, spoiler and underbody were tested separately on

high-speed test ranges. This ambition and persistence paid off, as

the official speed measurement proves.

The Veyron s high velocity is due to the perfect combination of

engine technology, consistent lightweight construction, specially

developed tires, and the complex balance of propulsion and

downforce. Not only aerodynamic drag plays a crucial factor at very

high speeds, but also the precise adjustment of the downforce that

holds the car to the road surface. In addition to this raw speed, the

Veyron also meets the highest safety, reliability and maneuverability

standards requires by even the most discerning drivers.

To create the optimum aerodynamics, the Bugatti engineers

developed three configuration modes.

Standard mode — used for speeds up to 220 km/h, the rear spoiler

system is completely retracted. In handling mode, used at higher

velocities, the vehicles nose is pulled down and the monumental

rear spoiler deployed. This produces an additional 350 kg of

downforce without compromising the Veyron s exceptional handling.

Top speed mode — for velocities beyond 375 km/h, which is activated

before the engine is started. In top speed mode the front diffuser

flaps are shut to make the underbody absolutely level, and the

spoiler is lowered and completely aligned with the chassis, forming

The Bugatti s Veyron 16.4 is the first super sports car with

guaranteed ESP functionality at all speeds including top velocity,

tested and approved by exceptional race car drivers.

The first ESP tests at velocities beyond 300 km/h were performed on

the dried salt lakes in the American Southwest where the

low-friction ground surface is ideal for taking a car s road grip to the

limit. Featuring intelligent four-wheel drive and four electronic

controls, the Veyron is as safe as it is fast. Two steerage systems, a

Haldex clutch, and the rear axle locking differential provide the

necessary dynamics, while the brake pressure regulation and active

torque control ensure controllability.

In addition to the ingenious electronic controls, the Veyron 16.4

features high-precision engineering and a perfect underbody based

on state-of-the-art racing technology. Double traverse control arms

in the front and rear guarantee precise wheel control. All elements

work smoothly together with minimal friction and a maximum of

stability. Suspension, cushioning, and stabilizers react directly and


The steering system is equally well balanced: the high connection

stiffness of all elements ensures direct reactivity. The car follows

accelerating: braking.

The Bugatti Veyron exploits the full range of available technologies

to allow for ultra-fast deceleration. It takes less than 5 seconds to

get from 0 to 100 km and back to a complete standstill. In theory,

that is, for such a feat would require the driver to react with nearly

superhuman speed. The whole braking process takes no more than

31.4 meters or 2.3 seconds – that is less than the car needs to get

from 0 to 100 km. And even the 400-to-0-km/h deceleration is a

matter of less than 10 seconds.

Made of high-tech carbon, ceramic, and titanium materials, the

brake system guarantees consistently high friction values and

optimum cooling. Intelligent carbon-ceramic brake discs with

interior ventilation, eight-piston monoblock caliper units in the

front, and six-piston caliper units in the rear ensure the necessary

driving agility on a par with professional racecars.

The rear spoiler serves as an additional air brake at speeds beyond

200 km/h. Activated by the brake pedal, the spoiler shoots up and is

Lightweight Construction:

A super sports car like the Veyron 16.4 needs to be light in order to

reach top speeds.

From the initial concept to the design and the selection of

materials, the Bugatti engineers tapped the full potential of their

considerable expertise to ensure that this car is, indeed, a

lightweight. Titanium, carbon, magnesium, and aluminum – each

part of the Veyron 16.4 is made of the material with the lowest

weight and the highest level of functionality — The titanium piston

rods save approx. 4 kg of weight, the titanium screws 3.5 kg, and

the magnesium valve caps another 2 kg.

By reducing the wheelbase, the original weight was reduced by

about a third, and the titanium exhaust system – another Veyron

16.4 first – with its wafer-thin layer of titanium aluminite saves yet

another 17 kg. These combined efforts capped the Veyron 16.4 s

weight at a compact 1,888 kg. Add the car s high-powered

performance and unmatched speed, and you have a uniquely fast

and nimble super sports car.

Optimum protection is guaranteed by the car s carbon monocoque

construction: weighing only 110 kg, the survival cell withstands

enormous crash impact forces. This principle is comparable to that

used in the Formula 1 world, where drivers usually emerge uninjured

from their cars even after severe accidents. The maximum impact

force reduction is mainly due to the frames integrated in the carbon
